Project Manager / Geologist (Former Employee) – Township of Moon, PA – September 14, 2017
Very professional organization and staff. They do good work and pleasant to work there for 20 years. poor management decisions led to loosing govt and big contracts which led to my layoff and dismissal.
FIELD TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 10, 2017
I'm currently a field technician for the engineering side of Michael Baker, so a typical day at work is "on site" , inspecting incoming and outgoing trucks that are hauling water for local fracking and drills. Expect to work 3-4 days a week, work every other weekend (3 day weekends), 12 hours a day, and drive to work sites in Washington county.
Good benefits, flexible schedule, the work is not complicated
layoffs, unpredictable work load any given day or night
Local office has challenges in a highly competitive environment. Nationally - top of the line folks.
Planning and Environmental Lead (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – July 20, 2017
While the local office has a challenge in the highly competitive Denver market, it has an excellent staff of talented and productive workers. Nationally - the company has excellent quals and produces top level work products.
Document Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 23, 2017
Very low stress job. Trusts their employees, lets them do their work. My typical day is just to do my requests without any or little oversight and only get talked to if there is an issue, which there is none most of the time. It is just they do not have positions for my career path.
good place to start, but not very much on personal growth
Analyst (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 13, 2017
This is a great place to gain experience. Management is mostly fair; culture is conservative; hardest part is being frustrated at the lack of individual growth and personal development; most enjoyable part is the comradeship among colleagues and most of the time cross functioning teams are more than willing to help.
Former employee (Former Employee) – Township of Moon, PA – August 29, 2016
I worked in the accounting department. for 7 years. While the manager at the time was extremely knowledgeable, they were extremely demeaning and negative. As a result, morale was extremely low. In my experience Michael Baker had a revolving door. Very few excellent employees stayed or were retained. I would search for jobs elsewhere, especially in the payroll dept., unless there has been a change in management.
